an avenue to prepare young people for the

future.  Through 4-H you will have the

opportunity to learn how to work with

others, whether they are 4-H members, school mates, adults, or members of

another organization.4-H members have the opportunity to go to camps, show their projects at fairs, travel, judge, make new friends from all over Texas, attend meetings and

workshops with other youth, and much more!

member of 4-H, but can be a Clover Kid. Clover Kids are eligible to
participate in 4-H projects but cannot compete. Being a Clover Kid helps you to decide what projects you want to be involved in when you become a 4-H
